I milked a Boer/Nubian for a while. She produced about 1 gallon a day of very nice milk, for about 6 months before drying off.
I could be wrong but, I'm just not seeing that much Boer in that doeling. Even my 1/4 Boer crosses had longer ears.
Lol, I have a alpine/boer cross doeling right now and her ears were floppy at birth, but they are now airplane ears
No idea on how they milk, and it will vary a lot depending on how each doe in her pedigree milks. I've seen alpines who have peaked at about a pint a day, I've seen boers that peaked at close to a gallon and a half a day. So really she could be anywhere in between. I will now next year on how mine milks, lol. Her mom produces a gallon a day and her dad is out of a heavy milking boer, so we shall see
I have a boer alpine cross and i wouldn't trade her for anything. On her first freshening I only got about a half gallon a day out of her but the milk was AMAZING. Second freshening I got over 3/4 a gallon a day of rich creamy SWEET delicious milk for 10 months and then I dried her up to breed her (she didn't end up getting bred that year because my bucks were both extremely young and not yet up to the task). I should have kids out of her in late february this upcoming year because I have confirmed breedings last week and I am GIDDY with delight.
It really depends on the genetics in your girl, but I personally love mine. I paid $50 for her, and wouldn't sell her now for anything.
I had two Boer/Oberhasli does (reg. 50% boers) who had milk almost as good, milked a little less, but I adored them as well, they just hated being milk does so i sold them to a Boer breeder. I plan to breed my nice Nubians to Boers at some point in hopes of some good milk/meat cross doelings to retain. I breed these does to a pure or mostly meat bred buck in order to get babies with plenty of meat for the freezer, best of both worlds for me.
When I had a mixed herd of Boers and Dairy, I milked all my does, Boers, mixed and full dairy. I expected all to make a decent amount of milk or they went away. My cross does did great milking. They went the entire 10 month lactation. Some gave me 8 pounds a day, some more, some a bit less. If they gave less than 6 pounds a day average, they went bye-bye. The full Boers were allowed to give 5 on average, which they did and they did go a full 10 months also. I also did not allow any does, full, cross or otherwise, to have more than 2 clean teats.
